Hummus is pretty healthy anyway, and it is always a good choice of snack. But, most ready made hummus has loads of oil in it, as well as tahini (which I don’t think is necessary), which can really bump up the calories. This recipe is really simple, and the best thing about it is that you can make any flavour hummus you want. I went with a red pepper and paprika, but try adding some spice with chili or some caramelised onions or just leave it plain.
– 400g of cooked or 1 tin of chick peas (if using tinned rather than dried, rinse them first)
– Juice from 1 lemon
– 2 garlic cloves, crushed
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 1 red pepper
– 1 tbsp paprika
1) Put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
